Tempe, Arizona – Paxton Malone scored twice for the UNLV Rebels who were edged 3-2 by the hometown Arizona State Sun Devils here at the Oceanside Ice Arena on Saturday night. UNLV worked to a two-goal lead, then ASU scored three straight times to win it.

Paxton, from Spokane, has always been a bigtime goal scorer. He had 79 goals, 103 assists in his four-season career with the Spokane Braves in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League. Paxton had 27 of those goals last winter. 

Ben Giesbrecht was in the net for UNLV which is now 6-2-0 overall this season.

Game Preview notes….

Tempe, Arizona –  UNLV’s massively great goal scorer Cody Willams is in the lineup tonight for the Rebels against Arizona State ACHA D1. Cody was out for a game following a heated situation against Utah University last weekend. UNLV, without Cody, had to dig deep and battle hard to beat ASU by a goal here at the Oceanside Ice Arena last night. Cody has eight goals this season to lead the Rebels. UNLV, 6-1-0, is ranked #10 nationally.
